Hello,

Pre-approval of ID verification shouldn't take such a long time as weeks. Can you please log a ticket at https://rhtapps.redhat.com/comments/ so that the team can check the details and revert to you?

Hi @Yousuf ,

Internet speed tests available on the internet choose the nearest server to test bandwidth and hence realtime results can be quite different. The download/upload test of our compatibility test looks at the speed to access Red Hat servers and hence it will be different based on distance, time of testing, etc.

Please try conducting a few more iterations of this test at different times of the day to see if the failure is consistent.

Can I use an IMac? 

The IMac however has a wireless trackpad and a wireless keyboard, is that acceptable?

Hello @Sai_K,

Wireless keyboard and trackpad are not acceptable. You will need a wired keyboard and mouse. iMac compatibility in general such as wireless adapter detection, ability to boot to the live USB etc. can only be determined by creating the bootable remote exam image on a USB and testing it out. Hence, if you have a wired keyboard and mouse handy, please create a live USB and run the compatibility test.

Hello @seandrethegiant,

2018/9 series Macs seem to have compatibility issues with several Linux distributions and is impacting our remote exam image too. Keyboard, Touchpad, Mic and Webcam are seen to work erratically or not work at all. Do you have another laptop that you can try with?

Regards,

Shefeeq

Hello @limaunion,

I asked around internally and it seems like the demand for testing center and remote exams have been quite high lately, nearing the maximum exams that can be monitored on a given day. Nevertheless, there may be time slots that are outside of your business hours if there are other timezones where bookings are lesser. I do not have visibility to global schedules, however, the understanding is that the demands are high due to which slots may be booked out during certain times.

PS: Slot availability is dependent on the maximum number of exams that can be monitored by Red Hat's remote exam proctors each day. 

Best Regards,

Shefeeq

I am trying to pay for the exam, but after I add the RHCSA 8 exam to the cart and click checkout, it redirects me to a page where it is suggested to click Login or register( Even though I am already logged in ), I click login and I am redirected to the site https://training-lms.redhat.com/

Where do I get a notification saying "There are no items in your cart."

So how can i pay for it?
